: "If you don't like it, you can lump it."
Your phrase is spoken to someone who does not like a certain situation,
thing or occasion and complains about it.
For instance, a father buys his daughter an expensive blue cell phone and she complains that she wanted a BLACK cell phone.
The father gets a bit aggravated and sez "If you dont like it, you can lump it".
I do not know the origin but I know and love the daughter very much.
